Summary In September 2014, al-Qaeda Central (AQC) launched its latest regional affiliate, al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS). The new group was created to operate across South Asia, however, with its centre of gravity and leadership based in Pakistan. This paper is a background brief, designed for policy makers, to shed light on and increase understanding of AQC's latest affiliate AQIS. At first glance the lack of successful action has led many to argue that AQIS is of limited threat. However, despite early setbacks, the group has not been eliminated and continues to organise and plan for the future
